CEO Roundtable – North American Partnerships in the New Digital Age: Content, Mobility and Interconnectivity
According to ResearchAndMarkets, the North American data center market is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.1 percent through 2024, due in part to the rapid adoption of cloud-based solutions throughout the region. Additionally, many OTTs are seeking colocation in availability zones in both Canada and the US, given the advantages of affordable space and power, and ample interconnectivity options. Together, the panelists and decision-makers attending will determine 3-5 ways to maximize this growth cycle while mitigating risks, as we continue to push forward in this new digital age.

All attendees are welcomed to join us for drinks, music, casual networking to celebrate the end of a successful day of networking at Telecom Exchange.
Telecom Exchange (TEX) provides an efficient way for FirstLight to reconnect with its carrier customers and vendors. The timing and location of the event is very convenient and the “carrier neutral” format puts FirstLight on equal footing with its competitors.
Maura Mahoney, Senior Director of Marketing and Product Management at FirstLight Fiber
Thank you for always hosting a wonderful event. I always make valuable connections with other members of the IT community and enjoy the different exciting venues. I particularly enjoy the networking with the diverse mix of professionals in this fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Victor W. Cardona, Strategic Network Consultant at Comcast Business
We had an amazing time at this year’s TEX; between the panel discussion, networking and a steady stream of interviews, this one-day event proved to be a great success. Relevant, frank, informative, and productive, TEX is unlike any other show we have attended.
Roy Hirst, Director of Marketing at XKL
Telecom Exchange exceeded our expectations regarding the number of quality companies represented and the opportunity to network with these firms in both social settings and one-on-one meetings.
Greg Byrne, VP of Business Development at LightRiver Technologies, Inc.
The new format of Telecom Exchange ’18 made the event even more productive than past years. The more intimate nature of the gathering, and the strong representation of high-level executives, fostered a feeling of trust that made for more candid panel discussions and better meetings. I hope JSA sticks with this style of event going forward.
